The Gene Expression Atlas is a semantically enriched database of meta-analysis based summary statistics over a curated subset of ArrayExpress Archive, servicing queries for condition-specific gene expression patterns as well as broader exploratory searches for biologically interesting genes/samples. The EBI Gene Expression Atlas Blog discusses ideas, features and problems of creating a large scale meta-analytical atlas of gene expression from publicly available microarray data. Atlas REST API provides all the results available in the main web application in a pragmatic, easy to use form - simple HTTP GET queries as input and either JSON or XML formats as output.
Gene Expression Atlas goals:
1. Provision of a statistically robust framework for integration of gene expression experiment results across different platforms at a meta-analytical level
2. A simple interface for identifying strong differential expression candidate genes in conditions of interest
3. Integration of ontologies for high quality annotation of gene and sample attributes
4. Construction of new gene expression summarized views, with a view to analysis of putative signaling pathway targets, discovery of correlated gene expression patterns and the identification of condition/tissue-specific patterns of gene expression.
